Battling for an 8-man title: Posen vs. Au Gres-Sims

The 5th Down’s week eight Game of the Week is a match-up for the 8-man North Star League and Midwest Central Michigan conference title. If Au Gres-Sims defeats Posen, then the Wolverines win both titles outright. If Posen wins then the Vikings, Wolverines and Hillman Tigers share the title.

This game is extra special because it is a 46-year long rivalry that has been renewed after taking a hiatus for ten years.

Au Gres-Sims is the only undefeated team in Northeast Michigan (7-0). Senior quarterback Caden Zeien can throw deep and rush, but don’t forget Ryan Schwiderson and his speed.

Posen is led by senior running backs/linebackers Mark Wisneiwski and Sam Brunet. Both individually have the chance to reach 1,000 yards rushing. Ben Delekta contributed 19 tackles last week against Heston Academy.

The two teams take the field Friday, October 12th at 7 p.m. in Au Gres-Sims.
